Doughnut Recipe

Last weekend was the junk ranch. Families from all over flocked to the big red barn just off the highway to talk down prices and get some good finds. I unfortunately wasn’t able to go, but my friend did. The only thing he purchased though was a 30 dollar box full of papers. We went to my house and started to organize. We found pictures of historic paintings, people, animals, cars, and even how to do sign language. There were a few papers that caught our eyes though. They were recipe that looked like they dated back to the 1950/60s. I thought it would be a good idea to share it with everyone.


This first recipe is for doughnuts!


You will need 

  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 2 ¾ cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg or cinnamon
  • 4 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 cup sugar


Save ⅓ cup of measured flour for board. Beat eggs until light; add milk, then add liquid to the dry ingredients which have been sifted together. Roll out ¼ inch thick on lightly floured board and dry in deep fat (365° – 375°). Drain well on unglazed paper. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. 

Makes 30 doughnuts. They do not contain any shortening and should be fried very carefully, so that the grease won’t be absorbed.


Overall these doughnuts make a very wHOLEsome breakfast. I tried them in a pot instead of a fryer and it worked fine. They were delicious.
